“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

I spent this past weekend at Casta Diva primarily to perform in a show being held at Vissi D'Arte (their on-premises theatre). What a fantastic weekend. The venue was breathtaking. From the magnificent mountain backdrop and view to the immense diversity of vegetation and birds there was always something new to experience. We stayed in the newly built villas and the rooms were spacious and classically decorated. The food was mouthwatering and the service was faultless and I really regretted having to leave. Liza, the manager, went out of her way to assist us in any way she could and made us feel totally at home. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.

Pretty place with a nice restaurant and good service. Rooms were a bit small and a tad old. Beds were a bit short and not the most comfortable. In summary a nice pretty place with a full on restaurant which is very useful if you don't want to venture out in the evenings but the rooms even though very clean were a bit lacking.

We only stayed for one night but it was enough to notice how good this place is. They were very friendly, always eager to make you feel comfortable.
I will definitely stay in Casta Diva if I go back to Pretoria.
Congratulations to the owners and the staff

I stayed now for the second time at Casta Diva and I must say it was as perfect as the first time. The staff is very friendly and professional and you feel like part of a family. The rooms are comfortable and the service is very friendly and perfect. The location is beautiful. Situated on the montains in the north of Pretoria with a beautiful garden and pool area. Sometimes they have performance from young artists playing music or theatre.The restaurant offers a good choice of food in excellent quality aand perfect service. I can only recommend the Casta Diva

I spent 4 night at the Casta Diva Boutique Hotel, it was very good experience.

Richard and his team did all the best to make my stay with 5 other colleagues nice and comfortable.

Rooms are clean, breakfast is prepared from fresh products, service is at the needed level.

Definately my next stay in Pretoria will be at Casta Diva.

Thanks guys for all your efforts.

Room Tip: Room close to the lobby are very nice

I was on a business trip in March 2011 and was going to spend two months in Pretoria. The company chose Casta Diva. It is a Artist retreat. A pool, tennis court, small theater .Lots hiking!
They have themed Casitas nestled throughout the compound and larger one-bed lofts with kitchens for those who want they luxury of a hotel but the amenities of home. I stayed in both and loved the loft. The room are pristine and the staff is attentive to your need and details. Love my bed! Looking forward to the time I can relax, work, and play at the DIVA again. Thank you
